A survey of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is analyzing the potential impact of the practice of yoga on quality of life of cancer survivors. Researchers will monitor and evaluate patients, physically and mentally, including their emotional well-being during a series of yoga classes.

"The cancer survivors, adults often report a worse quality of life after treatment, including fatigue, sleep problems and psychosocial problems," said Debra L. Friedman, leader of the study. "Despite the enormous implications of having a worse quality of life, few researchers have promoted interventions designed to improve the ratings of a group of survivors of the disease."

About 60 patients, aged between 18 and 65, are enrolled in classes of yoga. The courses will be held at the Vanderbilt-Ingram and Meharry General Hospital (NGH) and will last 10 weeks, with sessions from 60 to 90 minutes. Classes will be taught by instructors trained by the Vanderbilt Center for Integrative Health.

The volunteers will be selected specifically for the study and must meet certain requirements, such as having completed chemotherapy in the last five years, have medical authorization and autonomy to practice physical exercise.
